Pie-Tastic Care Packages: Real Food for Hungry Students

Thu, Sep 14, 2023

treat your student to a care package of delicious pies

Picture this: Your young relation has somehow transformed from a shy 5 year-old on their first day of school to a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed student, embarking on the adventure of a lifetime – university life! They've left the nest, and now they're in a new city, getting to grips with student accommodation and navigating the wild world of higher education. It’s an exciting time for them, a whole new chapter. But between lectures, essays, and maybe a few parties, they might start to miss the comforts of home. 

You’re worried that they’re subsisting on instant noodles and have forgotten what vegetables look like. If they could only eat a couple of decent meals each week you’d sleep more soundly. 

Fear not, Pies By Post has your back!

We've made it our mission to bring a slice of home to students. A care package of our sumptuous sweet and savoury pies is the perfect remedy for those late-night study sessions, homesickness, or just when they need a little TLC in the form of a delicious, golden pastry pocket.

Why Pies for Students?

Let's face it – university can be a whirlwind. Students are juggling classes, assignments, newfound independence, and probably a budget tighter than their jeans after a few too many pints. When they're on their own for the first time, convenience often trumps culinary finesse. And that's where our delectable pies come in!

A Taste of Home

Our pies are more than just a meal; they're a warm, comforting hug.

Imagine opening a Pies By Post package to find a selection of our mouthwatering handmade pies, lovingly baked with the finest ingredients. Now imagine your hungry offspring opening a box of our top notch pies, being transported back to your family kitchen, where the smell of freshly baked pies filled the air, and all was right with the world. It's like getting a piece of home delivered right to your doorstep.

Luxury Meets Affordability

Pies By Post pies strike the perfect balance between luxury and affordability. Our ingredients are sourced with care, and our recipes are crafted with love to ensure every bite is sensational.

The best part? There are plenty of options:

  • Treat the under-nourished student in your life to a mixed box of our delicious pies. Each order arrives with storage and heating instructions making it super easy to simply stash them in the freezer ready to pop one into the oven when they need a filling meal.
  • Help them make new friends by sending a tasty selection they can heat up for a posh dinner party. 
  • Students can indulge too. We know uni life often means tightening the purse strings, but that doesn't mean compromising on quality. A cash strapped friend group can chip in to buy a batch of delicious pies and get them delivered straight to their student digs.  

Our pies are easy on the wallet, so you can treat yourself without feeling guilty. No need to sacrifice quality for cost when you have us by your side.

Pie-rific Variety

One of the joys of university life is meeting people from all walks of life and with diverse dietary preferences. That's why we offer a wide range of pies to cater to every taste bud.

Carnivores can sink their teeth into our succulent steak and ale pies, hearty chicken, leek and mushroom pies, or perfectly piquant pork, chorizo and manchego pies. We promise, it's like a party in your mouth!

For those that follow a plant-based diet, our delightful vegetarian options tick every box. Try our broccoli, cauliflower and cheese pies or the ever-popular chestnut, mushroom and red wine pies. Even if you're a die-hard meat lover, these veg-filled beauties might just make you consider going green – they're that good!

Sweet Treats Galore

And let's not forget dessert! After a long day of lectures, students deserve a yummy reward. Our sweet pies are the stuff dreams are made of. From a rich and velvety chocolate, pear and almond pie, to our zesty apple and blackcurrant pie served with a dollop of cream, they're heaven in a bowl.
